    Poor service, great food

    This place is always pretty packed, which might explain the SLOW service. But the food is great and reasonably priced. I leave everytime with such a feeling of satiety.

    My Favourite restaurants in the city. Everything on the menu is amazing and the Oreo Cookie Cheesecake is to die for. 99% vegan Menu, all in all just fantastic.

    So good

    As a recent veggie convert, I loved this place. The food is so fantastic that even a meat lover won't miss the meat at all. The ACE and BDFV trains are actually less than half a block away at the West 4th stop, not as far away as a previous review suggested. Definitely check it out.

    Yummy and Casual

    The food is great, the waiters helpful and have a sense of humor. A little small to bring a crowd, but they are accomodating for groups.

    This was the highlight of our visit to New York. Excellant food! Unpretentious atmosphere. Of course we were on foot and we were late into the evening (no crowd). We will defintely go back.

    Good food but small

    This is an all-vegetarian restaurant, specializing in mock meat. Food is good but prices are on the higher side, thankfully not outrageous. Most times I've gone, it was crowded though, probably due to its close proximity to NYU. It's best to schedule a reservation and come in small groups. Location is several blocks from the subway line, which can be tough in cold weather.

    Better than a real cheesesteak

    According to a recent vegetarian convert who used to love real cheesesteak. Red Bamboo is easy to love, even if you are not a vegetarian. All the food is fantastic. I actually really like the soy product used for the citrus beef and the barbecue steak sandwich (formerly the cheesesteak)--it is tougher than they soy chicken and somewhat chewy, as another reviewer pointed out, but I find it the perfect texture for the sauces it appears in--especially in the sandwich. Readers who enjoy this restaurant should also try Vegetarian's Paradise down the street (same owners, I think)--it's a bit cheaper and has more of an asian tilt; perhaps it's a better option for a quick lunch, while Red Bamboo could be reserved for a nice dinner.
